What I don't understand is why you are having trouble editing HDV in real-time; The latest version of Premiere should be able to do it, if your computer is up to snuff. Even Premiere Elements 3.0, which I use, can do it. I do have issues with choppy sound, but it's just a monitoring issue, so I live with it.
Personally, I use the m2t files as proxies for the eventual lossless AVIs which I swap in for final mastering.

Yes... Premiere CS3 do have HDV real-time editing. And as it is right now, I only work on projects under the 10 minutes length... but I am aiming at a solution for full feature length work in the near future and already I need to render video time and time again to get a nearly chop-free video... it's this almost-chop-free video that irritates me the most... it seems like no matter how much I render the timeline I never get a full-motion-thorough-experience until after final export-render. This may do in my short tests and other minor projects... but I want to be able to do a feature length video edit with hundreds of cuts and preview it all the way through without any choppy flow...
It's nitpicky... I know... but I find it so hard to estimate the flow of cuts when the video randomly freeze-frames while reviewing the latest changes. The "draft" mode actually seems to demand more horsepower than full resolution by the way and will seldom give smooth playback at all...
my specs are as follows by the way:
AMD athlon64 3500+ at 2.21 gigHz
Radeon x800GT graphics

I've never tried it with anything super long, (I still can't even figure out how to properly export in full quality HD with premiere!) but the solution I use to make proxy files is simply use the Adobe Media Encoder, make a smaller MPEG2 file. Edit with that, then simply replace the MPEG2 files with your full quality files and go. I'm not sure when you'd do the color grading with that system, as I do mine in a seperate program, but that's the system I use for proxy files.
